The Gathering Place held a car show Saturday, October 4, 2020  and offered different wines and craft beers that pair well with  classic, exotic, and luxury cars.

The Willow Beach Wheels & Wine Car Show was held on the QuikTrip Great Lawn from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. as was sponsored by Jackie Cooper Imports which provided five beautiful 2020 and 2021 Mercedes Benz and Porsche's for the display.

 Gathering Place welcomed thousands, according to their Executive Director, Tony Moore. Moore estimated that “by the end of the day that we'll do about 7,000 to 8,000 visitors just for this event.”  The event was established to support local businesses like restaurants that have struggled during this Covid 19 period.

All of the vendors kept 100 percent of the money from the day. Visitors walked the paths of the Gathering Place and had opportunities to spread out at picnic tables and the great lawn.  Six restaurant vendors were surrounded by dozens of cars. Local musicians also provided a soundtrack at the event.  Additionally, over 10,000 pinwheels were placed in the park to support medical professionals who have provided HOPE during the pandemic.
